Date: August 27

Start and finish: Yakurai, Miyagi


  • The Rapha Prestige tasks small amateur teams with an unsupported and unmarshalled adventure across stunning terrain. Unsupported and unmarshalled, the rules are simple: navigate the route and finish as a team.



  • Prepare for approximately 120-130 kilometres of road and gravel riding. Expect to be on the bike for 8-12 hours. We seek out the roads less travelled, mapping out routes through remote landscapes. On this Prestige, you and your teammates will be exploring the gravel heaven of Yakurai, in the endless forest of Miyagi that borders the vast Tohoku wilderness.
  • The exact route will be revealed only to confirmed participants a week before the event.



  • Rapha Prestige Yakurai is a completely unsupported ride to be completed by teams of 4-5. To make sure you’re self-sufficient out on the road, ensure you’re prepared for anything by bringing along two tubes, a multi-tool, a pump, a patch kit, and a masterlink. We highly recommend a spare kit and plenty of food.
